But how can these little bugs harm your dog? Dogs are drawn to Asian Lady Bugs because of their strong repellent odor and foul taste. Somehow, dogs will attempt to eat more of them. When dogs try to eat them, they usually flush them with water in an attempt to swallow them to get rid of the taste. If successful, only minimal damage can happen.

However, there are times when dogs fail to swallow them because of the little bug’s rounded hard back. Also, when these Asian Ladybugs die, their bodies will secrete a gooey liquid which causes them to stick to the roof of a dog’s mouth.
